Most likely on the TIPM module under the hood. Have not searched for it myself but here is a photo I borrowed.

What are you trying to wire to the horn?

I am trying to take a 12vdc feed from the relay to power my siren so the horn switch in the steering wheel can be used as a momentary switch. It will he on a switch between regular horn and siren. This is the first vehicle that i can't find the relay.

I don't think the horn has a relay. Like the turn signals, I think it's now all computer controled.

Update: dealer sent me a document that says its a k19 relay. Can't find it.

I tested one of the horn leads for 12vdc at the horn but wasn't rewarded with 12vdc.

Any ideas how I can have the horn switch in the steering wheel send a signal to power a (normally open) relay?


On a side note, any ideas for getting power wires through the fire wall and into the cabin?

It is pin X21 (Gray yellow wire) on the TIPM.

next to you master brake cylinder, there is an opening that leads into the cab. you'll see other wires going through it.

Also if you pull off the covers next to your speakers, you'll see quarter sized holes that look like they are filled with foam. Poke through that and wires can be fed into the engine bay.

Yes these wonderful new computerised vehicles... All inputs, like the horn button for example, simply send a signal on to the computer to tell it to do something - prob only a 5 volt signal at the horn button, though I cant verify that.

Thanks for the reply!
Is it a 12v lead?
Can you be more specific where I can find the harness?

Did you mean jk?
It is a 2011.
I'm going to contact the distributed and some local agencies that install sirens in dodge vehicles. I assume dodge vehicles should be wired similarly.

Retested the horn lead at the horn, and indeed I got 12.4vdc.
It is the grey/yellow wire.
Thanks for the help.
